Welcome Students & Families

Dear Eckstein Families:
School Hallway.pngWe are off to a great start! Students are learning new routines, finding their classes and opening lockers. They have been engaged in math, reading and music assessments that will help us ensure that their class placements are correct.

Most schedule changes are now complete. There are some changes to math schedules, however, that need to be made to balance class sizes. Parents or guardians of students impacted by these class adjustments will be notified as the changes are made, and we will work very hard to minimize any disruption to student schedules. There is still some space in many of our beginning music classes, including band, orchestra and choir.

Middle school is a great time for students to experiment with learning an instrument. The opportunity to play music or sing five days a week allows students to progress very quickly. Instruments are still available for student use, so please let your student’s counselor know as soon as possible if your student is interested in joining a music class.
